Mayor Andy Schor has been selected to serve on the Advisory Board of the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM). The USCM is the nation’s preeminent organization of city leaders that engages directly with the President and Congress to address the needs of America’s cities. Schor will serve alongside mayors from across the country to help shape the organization’s vision and agenda. “It is a great honor to be chosen by fellow mayors in cities, small, midsize, and large, to serve on the advisory board for the US Conference of Mayors. I look forward to working with the conference leadership as we grow all of America’s cities. Once again, Lansing‘s time is now, and we get to share that with the rest of the nation,” Schor stated. In addition to this new leadership role, Schor has served as Co-Chair of the Mayors & Universities Task Force in the Conference. Mayor Schor joins eight other new USCM Advisory Board Members, including fellow Michigander, Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud. The other new members include: Long Beach (CA) Mayor Rex Richardson Los Angeles (CA) Mayor Karen Bass Dearborn (MI) Mayor Abdullah Hammoud Waterloo (IA) Mayor Quentin Hart Fort Worth (TX) Mayor Mattie Parker Arlington (TX) Mayor Jim Ross Providence (RI) Mayor Brett Smiley Allentown (PA) Mayor Matt Tuerk The Advisory Board Members were elected as part of the USCM’s new leadership team at a business meeting of the Conference, which also marked the close of the organization’s 91st annual meeting. More than 300 mayors from across America gathered in Columbus, Ohio for the weekend’s session. The US Conference of Mayors is the official non-partisan organization of over 1,400 cities with populations of 30,000 or more. Each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor. Conference policies and programs are developed and guided by an Executive Committee and Advisory Board, as well as the Standing Committees and Task Forces which are formed to meet changing needs.
